    There are also guys in the restrooms who do not mind their own business, but I do not hang with them. Never understood the need to converse, while taking care of business.

    I had a conversation with a lady, about her little girl who had boots like I did when I was a kid… It was years ago, I was shopping with my boyfriend…After he waited for over 45 mins. he asked me who that was…my answer was, “I have no idea”…

    This is my life, also. Id
    f someone has a head, I am prepared to hold a conversation with them. (And I would add that I am not prejudiced against the headless – I just don’t understand sign language).

    I on the other hand have never understood why every other function has to shut down while taking care of business. Who was it decided that there was something wrong with talking on the phone in the can?

    Vonnegut called these sorts of “relationships by meaningless co-inccidences of association” Granfaloons, I believe. One of his favorites examples was “Hoosiers.”

    I’m amazed at the amount of people who won’t even look at each other while riding an elevator! Why not say something nice while you are so close together?

    This dichotomy was over-played in Asimov’s “Caves of Steel”. Men never spoke in the Personals; for women, they were a social center.

    I strike up conversations with people in checkout lanes and other places in the store if we’re both looking at the same thing but never have that I can remember in a washroom.

    A guy came in with phone on shoulder, did the urinal, and walked out, without an interruption.

    He might have had the capacity to keep himself entertained. People who are easily bored are boring.

    Because no one wants to hear your business hit the water.

    Husband has explained it to me that when everyone is standing around with everything out, no one talks to anyone.

    Also ladies rooms are, or at least were, setup more sociable. There is sometimes a seating area for one to rest (or breast feed). When I was in college a group of us had been working on a messy project, way after hours and were about the only ones left in the student center. We went to clean up and, just not to break up the camaraderie of the day we all went to the ladies room. The guys were amazed at the difference and the seating area and how much nicer it was in general. (Of course then the security guard came by and even though he was a friend and we were all just washing up, he threaten to have the guys arrested and we all left.)
